Tour of Sicily 2023
Palermo → Cefalù
9 days (8 nights) fully supported, mostly off the tourist route where possible, riding up to 115k a day, but not every day. We will ride a 40/60 coastal/inland route, including a two-night visit to the Aeolian island of Lipari. We use an excellent combination of traditional restaurants and unique accommodation, in all locations.
With a Palermo start, and a finish in the historic northern Mediterranean coastal town of Cefalu, we will ride an anti-clockwise loop around Sicilia.
We’ll be stopping over at the towns of Roccamena, Agrigento, Caltagirone, Milazzo and Lipari. Plenty of great coffee, gelato and many other Sicilian treats to be enjoyed en route too.

Cefalù is a city and comune in the province of Palermo, located on the northern coast of Sicily, Italy on the Tyrrhenian Sea about 70 km east from the provincial capital and 185 km west of Messina. The town, with its population of just under 15,000, is one of the major tourist attractions in the region. Despite its size, every year it attracts millions of tourists from all parts of Sicily and also, from all over Italy and Europe. In summer the population can triple, making the main streets and major roads in the country crowded. There is then a youthful atmosphere and a lively nightlife.
